Funds for Emergency Capital Repairs at Housing for Elderly
HUD is making approximately $5 million available to make emergency capital repairs to eligible multifamily sites owned by private nonprofit entities that are designated for occupancy by elderly residents. The capital repair needs must relate to items that present an immediate threat to the health, safety, and quality of life of the residents.
The intent of these particular grants is to provide one-time assistance for emergency items that could not be absorbed within the site's operating budget and other site resources, and where the residents’ continued occupancy in the immediate near future would be jeopardized by a delay in initiating the proposed cure. The notice provides instructions for owners of multifamily sites to request funding and instructions for the HUD field offices to process requests.
HUD is accepting applications for the grants on a first-come, first-served basis until Nov. 29, 2011. More information is available on the HUD Web site at: www.hud.gov/offices/adm/grants/nofa10/ecrgsec.cfm.
